Halloween

Today I went out searching for Halloween papers...unfortunately they just aren't big sellers over here.............maybe it's just me but I really want to make some altered Halloween Projects to prettify my house up!!


I'm thinking My Minds Eye's latest or Cosmo Cricket.....

I'm dreaming of Banners and Baskets.........sigh.......


To cheer myself up I am admiring this Blythe Doll instead...isn't she just the cutest thing!!



Obviously I couldn't afford her but she is floating my boat so I'm off to bed to have sweet pumpkin dreams.........at least they still sell pumpkins here even if they are only for carving!!


Honestly the best thing about Halloween is that I get to buy pumpkins and roast them with my Sunday dinner.....no-one else gets it...so sad:( They don't know what they are missing out on!

I think it is the size of the things that put me off. How can something that big be cut and cooked and made into something yummy to eat?

Nah, Halloween isnt big here! Though my mum was born on Halloween so we make fun of that! LOL!
And to your question about me being the same mandysea...the answer is yes. I came out of hiding! You are the only one that put two and two together...quite the detective!!
